For a game where we haven't watched them for 18 months, we're going into it as the champions and we're cruising to a 5-0 victory I thought it was quite lifeless on the whole. 3/4 of the ground couldn't even muster a single "city!" and as usual the race to escape started with 10 minutes left. Even the Norwich fans who had been silent all day piped up with is there a fire drill upon noticing that.
There's always a lot of moaning about players not showing their appreciation at the end of games, there was about 8/9 players today that basically did an entire lap of appreciation, even grealish came back on and did it and barely anybody saw.
Saying that, I understand its now hard for us to get as pumped up for games like this where we go into the game asking how many we are going to get not whether we will win, it would be a bit disingenuous if we were to act like we're in a cup final beating united 5-0. Usual sections played their part, and the usual sections didn't.
